You mean, leaving it on the ground? Sand on a wingtip, laid out flat ready for a side launch...logsdon wrote:I usually backstall my Sonic 18 but I've noticed as it wears in it won't still backstalled like it use to. Usually it will fold up some and then ball up and flip over etc etc, I can't leave it stalled while I take a beer break. I havn't checked the bridle yet but I would assume it's still good with less than 50 hours on it.
I wouldn't do that... in my mind, you're parking the kite with a lot of load still on the lines etc., and it may have a tendency to dance across the sand as the wind shifts. Not good for the TE material?logsdon wrote:I usually backstall it from a 45. It's just it won't still fully backstalled enough for me to run and sand it anymore. It usually will have the trailing edge curl up and then ball up for flip over etc. When I first got it, I could leave it backstalled for a long time without any problems. I do this by using an extra leash connected to just the back lines above the top plastic balls. I'll check the mixer next time I'm out.
